Started studying last night. It just feels too weird not to be studying.

I'm in the same boat, but decided I would enjoy the summer and get started in the fall.

You guys are kind of ruining the illusion. One of the main reasons I'm motivated to pass Exam 8 on this first sitting is so I don't have to study at all next fall.

I wouldn't mind starting to read through some of the papers when I have down time, but are you confident the papers currently on the syllabus will all remain on the syllabus?

I am not, but certain texts have been on the syllabus as long as this exam has been offered. We just happen to have a copy of the BKM text lying around.

BKM isn't going anywhere. Some of the chapters and LO/KS might get tweaked a little between now and next spring, if I was going to guess. The Hull text was removed last year, and some of the LO/KS didn't line up as well with the remaining corresponding BKM chapters.

There were some other changes to the reading list last year as well, so I wouldn't expect big changes this year, but what do I know?

It wouldn't be a CAS exam if there were not changes.
